Life is full of events that can knock you down. Sometimes it's an actual tumble or accident that lands you in the hospital. Sometimes it's a death of someone you love dearly and can't quite imagine life without. Maybe it's the tragedy of being abused as a child.

A new documentary from producer/director James Moll could be validating, enlightening or concerning, depending on your perspective. "Farmland" shares the perspectives of a half-dozen cattle ranchers, vegetable farmers and other rural Americans who operate far from the grocery shelves. For urban America, it is an eye-opening look at the people who produce much of the food we find at the supermarket. For those a little closer to our farmlands, it's a validation of a lifestyle far from the public eye. For Americans in general, it raises important questions that affect us all.

I know I'm not the only girl who imagined being courted by someone like Fitzwilliam Darcy after reading Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." Seeing Mr. Darcy brought to life in several film and television adaptations only made my romantic notions stronger. As I got closer to actually choosing a spouse, a romantic nature seemed important, but not crucial. Since I chose a more practical mate and one not prone to writing poetry, dancing the Quadrille or escorting me to dinner, I've learned to recognize romance in different ways.
